It saddens me to report that John had a major heart attack yesterday morning and died shortly afterwards in hospital.
John had not been too active these last few years owing to ill health but was starting to get back into collecting and writing. He last came to SLICS with me in I think 2008.
John was a great expert on British sporting ammunition and specialised in the Birmingham cartridge makers.
He was a great friend for over forty years and we will miss him dearly.
